Jamaican reggae superstar-turned-convict Buju Banton has expressed appreciation to his fans for their support.
"Our life and our destiny are sometimes predestined and no matter where this journey takes me remember I fought the good fight. It was a great man that said my head is bloody but sill endowed. I love you all, thank you for your support," Buju said in a statement read today by his attorney David Oscar Markus.
A jury at 2:30 today returned a guilty verdict on three of the four cocaine-related charges for which Buju was tried last week.
In a brief statement Markus said, "we are all very sad, disappointed and emotional.".
"The only person who seems to be ok is Buju. We just saw him in the lock-up and he has told us that he was happy that he fought knowing that he is innocent."
